It’s time for Youth Minyonniers!
Bring your teens and see how they become leaders and knowledgeable. They will lead the Saturday morning service in the chapel and amongst their peers. This is a great preparation for their b’nei mitzvah and fun with their peers! Children only service.
This event is held every third Saturday.

Ready for Torah Yoga?!
Join Rachel Stern, as she engages with our toddlers and preschoolers, accompanied by their parents, for an interactive Shabbat morning. Stretch out with Torah yoga and learn the stories of the Torah through song and dance. Come "play and pray"... and learn a bit of Hebrew!
This event is held every third Saturday.

Making Prayer Real: How to (Truly) Open the Prayerbook
Our class continues! For some of us, whether we grew up around Jewish prayer or not, the typical service can seem foreign, even forbidding, and the prayerbook difficult. In these two separate three-session classes, Rabbi Rose will give you tools to get more comfortable with Jewish prayer and make it more meaningful. We will look at the beauty and importance of the structure of the prayer service, discuss how to get beyond the literal meaning of the prayers and talk about how to personalize the prayer experience. You’ll walk away with a greater understanding of the siddur (prayerbook) and with tools to enrich your own tefillah (prayer).
